4 Great Gadgets for your Pets When You’re Not Home

From cleaning the litter box to endless games of fetch, these 4 pet-friendly gadgets are must haves for any home with a furry friend.

Our furry friends are such an important part of our homes.  Today, we’re rounding up four of our favorite pet-friendly gadgets for your home that take care of everything from cleaning the litter box to endless games of fetch.

Gadget #1: The Litter-Robot III Open Air – Cats are relatively low maintenance pets that don’t require much work and in return can be quite loving and cute. However, as any cat owner knows, there is one major hassle in owning a pet cat- dealing with the litter box. Traditional litter boxes are essentially plastic bins that cat owners must manually scoop out the clumps of cat poo and pee. This is a daunting task that needs to be done on a daily basis and can get quite overwhelming. Nonetheless, there is a miraculous solution to this issue — automated litter boxes that clean themselves.

While there are several models of these techy cat bathrooms, the Litter-Robot III Open Air is head and shoulders above the rest. With a spacious litter chamber that rotates after each use, removing the clumps and separating them into a drawer, this magical product will leave your home odor-free and keep your cats happy. Additional features include an automatic LED night-light and a ‘drawer full’ indication so that you can easily dispose of the full trash bag in the drawer. The Litter-Robot III Open Air is wonderful for multiple, large and small cats. Best of all, you will never have to scoop litter again!

Gadget #2: Petzi Treat Cam – Leaving for work every morning and having to be away from your pets for several hours at a time can certainly be heartbreaking. That’s why Petzi came up with a great way to stay connected with your pets when you’re not home. The Petzi Treat Cam lets you see your pets, speak to them, give them a treat, and snap a picture of their happy faces, all from the click of a button. They even have a social media platform for you to share the photos of your pets.

Whenever you miss your pets, think about them, or even if you have a good daily routine set in place, you can reach out to them and show them you care. Having the ability to check up on your pets, to actually see them through a wide lens camera, is truly remarkable. Not only will it give you peace of mind, it will bring a smile to your face every time you see them enjoy a treat. When you’re not together, there’s no better way to stay in touch with your pets than the Petzi Treat Cam!

Gadget #3: iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs – If you spend a lot of time away from home and feel guilty about leaving your dogs behind, don’t fret, there’s a way to ensure that they have fun without you. If your dog loves playing fetch, the iFetch Interactive Ball Launcher for Dogs is the perfect toy for them.

The iFetch website provides ample tips and videos to help you train your dog to use the device and learn how to play fetch on their own. Soon enough, your pup will be able to drop the ball into the machine that then launches it into the air. This amusing game will ensure that your dog gets enough exercise throughout the day while keeping things interactive and fun. Dogs no longer need their owners to play fetch with them and are now able to keep themselves entertained on their own!

Gadget #4: Petcube Play – Another brilliant camera device that let’s you keep track of your pets and play with them remotely is the Petcube Camera. Although it probably works best with cats, also works well with dogs and has some enhanced features that differentiate it from other interactive camera devices. For starters, is has two-way audio, allowing you to fully communicate with your pets. When you miss your fur baby, you can now speak to your pet and listen and watch them in return.

However, the reason it’s called the Petcube Play is because of its incredible built-in laser toy that lets you play and exercise your pet when you’re away from home. Keep them from getting bored and out of trouble by controlling the laser from your smart phone and watching them play through the camera. If you’re too busy, no worries, you can put the device on autoplay mode and keep your beloved felines and pooches occupied for hours!

    Excellent choice with the iFetch, I recently tried out a bunch of the new automatic dog ball launchers and found that iFetch made the made products out of any of them. They also have a small model and large model which uses bigger balls for bigger dogs. Here’s my rankings of the different launchers – http://woofwhiskers.com/best-dog-ball-throwers-2017/
